Does Your Equipment Need Repair?

Equipment Outreach, Inc. can assist with your medical equipment repair needs.

Our BioMedical Technicians can diagnose and repair many types of medical equipment. We will send you a repair estimate for review and approval prior to any final work being done. If approved, any diagnostics charge is applied to your bill. It’s that simple!

Be sure to pack up any item well (we suggest you take it to a shipping store – towels, paper and used bubble wrap are NOT good packing materials) and ship them to us by method of your choice (please allow up to 5 business days for shipping).  Be sure to include a note with whom to contact about the unit and what it is or is not doing (error messages, etc).   All items are returned via UPS (again, please allow up to 5 business days for shipping).

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE SERVICES

Let’s face it, you wouldn’t drive your car for thousands of miles without giving it a tune up, or run an engine for an extended period of time without changing the oil in it.  Medical equipment and devices are congruent to this theory as well.  Our biomedical technicians offer detailed preventative maintenance services for your medical equipment and devices, designed to improve the longevity and obtain more use out of the device.  Calibration, operational tests, power supply and voltage checks, and preventative detailed cleaning are some of the services designed and offered within our scope of preventative maintenance performance.

For more information, please contact us at 888-996-9968, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
